Diaper Bag and a Superbuzzy Trip

Hi Friends! I didn't get to do a Christmas post last month because like everyone else, I was superbusy sewing, making, baking, and I dare say, buying gifts. One of the gifts I was asked to make was a surprise diaper bag, purchased by her sweet husband (all behind her back, she didn't have a clue)!

Alot of labor and love went into this bag and when it came time to pack and ship it out, I so wanted to keep it for myself. I spent hours and days working on it and I chose some of my most favorite fabrics, so it was really hard to part with it. But, it went to a really good friend, and I knew she would love it (or I hoped she did) as much as I did.

I used oilcloth for the main zipper and bottom of the bag.

The bag has a total of 3 compartments. The first compartment has a large zipper pocket for keys, cell phone, and such.  The middle (or the main) compartment is lined with waterproof fabric and has 3 pockets for bottles, diapers, etc. The back compartment has 2 pockets for toys, nappies, etc. The total size of the bag measured about, 16 x 6 x 12, so this was the largest bag I've ever made. I also added a removable adjustable strap. I usually only make diaper bags on special request/orders. I have to admit, this was the hardest bag I've ever made, but so worth it in the end!

For Christmas, my husband planned a mini Christmas trip to Santa Barbara as a present. It was a much needed vacation of relaxation, wine tasting, and like all of our trips - too much food. We went to a beautiful French Bistro that my sis actually had her wedding reception here a few years back, so it was a nice treat to eat there again. One of the best parts of the trip was when we bought some french fries and brought it down to the beach while looking at this view. Pretty right?

On the way home, we stopped by Ventura and Superbuzzy, a Kawaii fabric store! I was greeted by a giant bee on the side of the building. How cute right?! They have an awesome website filled with fabric, gifts, supplies, and more, so be sure to check it out! I was so happy to actually go into the brick and mortar store I probably spent about 1 1/2 hours just browsing the rows and rows of fabric and supplies!

Here's my fabric haul from Superbuzzy. They were having a great sale (which I think is still going on?) so I stayed under my $100 budget (Christmas gift money yay!). Not sure what do with these quite yet. I'm totally in love with the wavy stripes and dots print. Thinking of making a cute shirt, but most certainly some bags! Stay tuned!
